>>> good thursday, everybody. i'm contessa brewer covering the big news coast to coast. we begin with breaking news out of texas, where authorities have arrested an army private assigned to fort campbell, kentucky. officials found bomb-making materials in his hotel room. that arrest came after someone reportedly overheard the private threatening to stage an attack on the army post at fort hood. fort hood was the scene of a deadly shooting attack in november 2009. major nadal hassan is accused of killing 13 people and wounding dozens of others. pete williams has the latest from washington now. pete, what do you know about this arrest of the private? >> reporter: right. well, good afternoon. you saw killeen, texas on that map. that's where he was arrested. he's a private first class assigned to fort campbell, but arrested in texas yesterday and according to law enforcement officials, what happened is he went into a gun store in killeen, texas and was asking questions that the gun store owner thought was suspicious. he was also buying smokeless powder which can be used for a variety
on this planet as we know it today. that is a very big deal. chris stirewalt joins me, fox news digital politics editor, i should say. so, chris, how long do we have on the planet, life as we know it? what's your take? >> i'm not buying anymore green bananas. [laughter] it sounds like we're headed into real trouble, doesn't it? martha: it sure does. >> well, look, the speaker -- the former speaker, pelosi, now the minority leader in the house demonstrates that before you get to the end on something like this, everybody has to say something totally over the top, and now she's taking her turn. the truth of the matter is we're probably closer now to a deal and closer now to a bipartisan resolution than we ever have been because as house republicans start to saddle up behind john boehner's plan getting over their grumbling about the fact that it doesn't give them everything that they want, it brings us closer to the final vehicle which will get republican and democratic support in the senate and move us on to an increase in the debt ceiling and some kind of a deal. martha: yeah. you know, there are
raise the debt limit. then he asked for big tax increases. we got rid of the tax increases. now we have a bill that does what hee we said it should do, cuttings more than it raises the debt limit by. is it perfect? no. is it as much as we proposed? no. this doesn't do that. but it gets us down the right path. it's cuts we can bank right now, it's a step in the right direction. so i think it's a good step in the right direction. >> it has to get 217 votes. have you a rowdy freshmen crowd who ran on the promise of a balanced budget amendment. and the balanced budget amendment is not in the boehner bill. how do you get enough of them to get to your 217 mark and have them go home and face their voters where they promised a balanced budget amendment? >> we have a vote on the balanced budget amendment. >> separate? >> that was always the case. the second thing, cut, cap and balance had to be separate from the bill. >> balanced budget amendment. >> that's right, excuse me. this requires that the senate vote on a balanced budget amendment. we never had the assurances we could even get a vote on

be a big detour in an entertainment career, but now, for some celebrity moms, it looks like exactly the opposite. their kids become part of their entertainment identities, even their brands. and ultimately help to create new success. this may look like child exploitation to some eyes, but tonight, abc's juju chang puts the question directly to the moms themselves for our series, "celebrity secrets." >> reporter: mommywood. it suspect just a lifetile. it's an industry. it seems for so many celebrity mothers, almost from the moment they give birth, the marketing begins. from j.lo's twins to the brangelina babies, magazines want the first shots, reportedly paying millions of dollars for first access. though brad and ang did give the money to charity. tori spelling posed for "people" with her son,n, and did not get paid. >> on >> even though they have a lot of help, they are still the ones who get up with the crying baby at night, and they're still the mom. and we respect that in this society. >> reporter: spelling's a case in point. the "beverly hills 90210" had burned through her mom
. if they manage to defeat this vote today, this is going to be a big, big problem for markets. if they don't, you may see markets continue to tread water until there is a solution to this. now, remember, speaker boehner's plan is not likely one that is going to pass the senate. not likely one that is going to get past the president. the bottom line if there is some sense boehner has better control of h over hi members you may see markets allowing a little bit more time. right now markets are largely relaxing but ready to move if this doesn't go the right way. >> thanks, guys. >>> at the bottom of the hour, we will go to wall street for the opening bell and answer a question many of us have right now -- should we take our money out of the stock exchange and where do we put it if so. we will talk to a financial analyst about that. >>> cnn obtained dramatic new video taken minutes after the bombing of the government buildings in norway. it was shot by a hamburg who works in oslo and driving through a tunnel beneath the city's government plaza when the bomb went off. eight people killed. he recorded
will this guy vote? he will tell us. and only us. look at the corner of wall and broad on the big board the dow jones industrial average down 6 2 1/2 points. we focus on the markets for good reason, we are led to believe they are sort of waiting to see what comes out of washington. but, are we making a mistake if we go the other way and conduct national policy, political long term debt policy based on the market? charles says "be careful." >>guest: be very, very careful. you have a couple of things going on. first the scare tactics that everyone is using in washington, you remember when the tarp vote did not go through and the dow jones industrial averages with down 700 points. do you want that to happen? president bush signed tarp into law october 3rd, 2008, march 9, the dow jones industrial average was off 4,000 points so that was not a panacea. unemployment got worse. our economy got worse. we have to be careful about worrying about the knee-jerk reaction. because they have said it so many times and because harry reid compared it to the great depression and armageddon there will be self self
and boehner plans, the big difference is the boehner plan forces us to raise the debç ceiling again and forces us to accept a $1.8 trillion or more in cuts from the so-called super commission, and if we don't do it, we go through another crises. he also demands a vote on the budget amendment. i think you could get something more rational to incentivize another plan down the road and have something with enough pressure coming from the markets, both parties could vote for. >> you make it sound like if reasonable people had a conversation about this there might actually be a solution, so thanks for being on and talking with us today. >> glad to be here. >> that was ezra klein, columnist for "the washington post" and bloomberg and also an msnbc policy analyst. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> now, ask yourself, would you -- no, not you, nancy. would you want john boehner's job right now, trying to placate a gaggle of angry tea partiers and stave off an economic calamity at the same time? i suspect there are moments even he doesn't want this job, but he's got it, and we need john boehner to get bet
that the boehner problem is anything more than a big wet kiss to the right wing and i mean the tea party. that's who i mean. it's too bad his caucus is being run by such a small number of people. >> what about the president's plan? when i asked the president's plan, his aides point to a speech and a veto threat. with all due respect, congress can't vote on a speech. and a veto threat won't prevent default. >> we are urging the republicans now to step back, put their party caucuses aside, put their pledges to grover norquist aside, put their caucus pledges to one congress manor the other aside, and put this country first. >> it's unfair of the president of the united states to lead from behind. it's unfair of the president of the united states not to come forward with a specific plan that perhaps could be considered by both bodies, but only to go out and give lectures. >> we are not going to hold this country hostage to the tea party. that's where it's at. you know, those folks over there, about 80 of them and maybe even more of those republicans, they pledged to grover norquist. i want to pled
